The Fairfax County Athletic Council of the Department of Community and Recreation Services recently announced their 2004 Champions of Character. This award program honors coaches and youth for extraordinary service in pursuing victory with honor and demonstrating the basics of good character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship in Fairfax County sports. The Champion of Character Awards is based on the national Character Counts! Sports Project. The project's aim is to help restore the ennobling tradition of amateur athletic competition.
The following Character Counts! Awardees are now also 2004 Champions of Character:
Jenny Bartell, Female Athlete, Springfield District
Chris Avery, Coach, Springfield District
Graham Milne, Coach, Sully District
Way to go!
